Ed's (almost natural...) food is the best--I've *never* seen fish hit it so quickly or seem happier eating it goldfish  I wish they carried it in every shop in the country.  I really do.

Off the shelf, I've had good luck w/ Hikari for small wafers and betta food.  I've tried OmegaOne b/c besides Ed's food, it's supposed to be closest to nature, but I never had any takers.  I tried Aqueon and Tetra when I had goldfish, but they didn't care for either.  Sushi nori was also panned.  Other than that, San Francisco bay frozen products were a bit messy and received mixed reviews.  Then there are treats--freeze-dried tubifex, bloodworms, brine shrimp...I think I used to do San Francisco bay on those, too--those, however, were always eaten with relish.

Good stuff, internationally available.

Ken has his own brand of food and he's local to me.  I can just pick it up rather than get it mailed.  It's good stuff.

Didn't we go over some of this back in January? I've used Ocean Nutrition (frozen foods) for marine fish, but not freshwater flakes.

Well I use it for freshwater fish now. Memory issues when you reach 70 years old.

This is another vote for almostnaturaltropicalfishfood. I do not think that I have ever seen fish quite so happy and hungry as with that stuff. For some reason it is just much better than most of the stuff that you are going to get. Too bad I cannot get it locally, have to get it online.
